Former Chelsea winger, Christian Atsu, has been pulled from the rubble of a building in Hatay with injuries.
Atsu’s manager, Mustafa Özat, disclosed this in an interview with the Turkish radio channel Radyo Gol.
Atsu, who currently plays for Hatayspor, was trapped after the earthquakes that killed at least 4,800 people in Turkey and Syria on Monday.
Hatay was one of the places closest to the quake’s epicentre and has suffered extensive damage.

“Christian Atsu was removed from the wreckage with injuries,” Özat told Radyo Gol.
He added, “Unfortunately, our sporting director Taner Savut is still under the rubble.”
Atsu has played for the likes of Newcastle United, Porto, Everton, Bournemouth and Malaga in the past.
